Vector Network Analyzers Arm Themselves for New Challenges (.PDF Download)

June 2, 2016

Fifth-generation (5G) networks are expected to require wider bandwidths and higher frequencies. As a result, characterizing power amplifiers (PAs) and other components will become even more complicated. To measure these devices, a wide-bandwidth vector network analyzer (VNA) measurement approach can be utilized. In the white paper, “Millimeter-wave VNA characterization using modulated signals,” Anritsu discusses how a VNA-based measurement platform can benefit higher-frequency PA measurements for 5G and related applications...
